The achaete-scute gene complex (AS-C), involved in differentiation of the sensory chaetes of D. melanogaster, and the yellow locus have been cloned. The yellow locus is the most distal and is followed, proximally, by the achaete and the scute loci. In the scute locus (75 kb), three transcription units separated by long stretches of DNA give rise to poly(A)+ RNAs of 1.6, 1.2, and 1.6 kb. Most DNA lesions associated with scute mutations map within the presumably untranscribed DNA. Their mutant… CONTINUE READING
